A Trip To The Planets - silent with added sound




Expressionistic and surprisingly accurate science fiction film from the silent age. We sea the solar system from the view of a flying saucer like vehicle of the future. Educational.


Run time 16 minutes 35 seconds
Audio/Visual sound

Thanks for posting. Can you please share where you found your source video so I can see if I can track down the exact year? My initial google search did not work. Thanks again. I will post video in my newsletter next month at www.act1nowplaying.com

A great silent educational movie, with the latest science from probably circa 1920+, definately before the discovery of Pluto in 1930 by Walt Disney... err maybe it was Clyde Tombaugh. Awesome music and sound effects added contemporarily. Some interesting sets and effects were used. I wish they would have explained how a "powerfull electric motor" was to be utilized to travel between the planets... Probably to turn a REALLY big propeller.
Doing a little research... knock me over with a feather... a dwarf planet, Eris, was discovered in 2005 thought possibly larger than Pluto, now also considered a dwarf planet, along with three others: Ceres, Haumea and Makemake.

That is the end of today's astronomy lesson. Class dismissed!!

If you like these types of old movies, this shouldn't disappoint!
